President's Message

January 2016

Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed a little time off (or maybe a lot) during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. It’s always good to take a little time to get away from the normal rigors of work and other “busy-ness” to spend time with family and friends.

January, traditionally, is the time of year when we make (or remake) resolutions and commitments to improve areas of our lives where we may feel a little deficient. I would encourage you to look at your professional life for ways to improve, particularly with regards to leadership and skills improvement. Often, we go day to day just trying to do our best to get the next job done and do not take any time for personal development. Take a little time each day to learn a new skill or to read from a book on leadership. It doesn’t have to be a lot of time spent, but a little each day will work dividends in your life. We owe it to those we serve to do our best and continually improve ourselves.

We have a great line up of luncheon speakers, webinars, and our annual Professional Development Training seminar that will take us through May. At this month’s luncheon, we will be privileged to hear from Dean Cameron, current head of the Idaho Department of Insurance, former co-chairperson of the State’s Joint Finance Appropriations Committee. His topic will be “Influencing State Policy”.

Thank you for your service. Thank you for your professionalism. Thank you for your great examples.

I’ll see you around.
